Unlocked Apple 3G iPhone Reviews (33)

  1. June 14, 2009 by Jason

    Good phone but not worth the price.

  2. June 16, 2009 by Heather Ream

    I absolutely HATE this phone. Everyone was ranting and raving on about it for months and it was the first time I buckled under peer pressure and it was a lesson learned. The marketing team at apple are just amazing. They can put lipstick on a pig.

    The touch screen on this phone is usually slightly delayed which is annoying as hell! There is absolutely NO tactile feedback to let you know you actually touched the right area and it’s literally impossible to text without looking. I mean come on, it looks great but its a pain to use.

    The battery life is sub par and not being able to use it on your own carrier?

    It got two stars for two reasons, the video is EXCELLENT on this phone (although the space on the device is nowhere NEAR enough) and there are a few handy apps.

    All in all, I’d wait for the Nokia N97

  3. June 16, 2009 by Eamon Ryan

    I have to disagree Heather, I love this phone. I’ve had every different model since the first gen (and waiting for the 3gS). I’ve always been with At&T so Ive never had a problem with the carrier thing.

    The iPhone is great for so much more than you suggested. It is a mini-computer, not a phone. If the iphone only had maps and a web browser, id buy it. But it can make calls and is my ipod too!

  4. June 18, 2009 by Dillan Patel

    I’ve had this phone for 6 months and to me it is the best phone at&t has to offer but i accidentally dropped it in water and now the screen will not work. to make matters worse i didn’t buy warranty.

  5. June 29, 2009 by Tom Strauss

    Just have to say the first two that wrote the reviews are just idiots. I have to say that my iPhone 3G is worth every penny spent. So easy to text, great video’s, awesome apps and I can just go on and on about it. I don’t know how I would live without it now. Just don’t listen to idiots, treat yourself with the best.

  6. July 3, 2009 by Erik Z.

    you cant update to any new version of the next firmware updates if you buy this phone jailbroken. the firmware you get with it now is the phone you will have forever unless you try to upgrade in a few months to the next new firmware because then all you will have is a $249 paperweight as it will re-lock and never again be able to be unlocked.

    and anyone who thinks this the end all be all of phones – needs to wake up – n95, n96, n97 all crush this phone and any new blackberry, bold, storm, etc. is also in a different category. but what do i know i have actually owned all of them except for the n97 which is no contest going to be the best phone on the market. cant wait to get it.

  7. July 3, 2009 by erik

    erik z….nobody listen to this guy (apparently he is too enthralled by overpriced shitty os’s). You CAN upgrade the firmare on a jailbroken and unlocked phone, you just have to wait for the dev team to crack it (which takes them about 2 or 3 days after launch of new firmware) and it is a very simple process. If you need a hand held walkthrough, Gizmodo has a step by step process to do it. Honestly this isn’t the best phone on the market, but I don’t believe in anything like that because the phone quality is based on the end user, and some people can’t get the most out of this phone. Case in point, you need to type a ton of emails…I would NOT recommend the iphone, I would go with something with a physical keyboard personally. All in all, its a super quality product with a TON of support in the market….you could do alot worse for 250 bucks

  8. July 3, 2009 by PC Addict

    Heather you are a lunatic! I will buy your phone right now! How much do you want for it?

    (who texts while not looking at the phone, and what ARE you looking at anyways?) If you just want to text and talk then get a cheap or free phone. The iPhone Apps are the best part of the whole device! Some (note: SOME) of the games on there are phenomenal and the biz/utility apps are awesome. I day trade with this thing!

    Silly teen, give you iPhone to a real user who wants to do more than talk and text. Price it and I’ll buy it.

  9. July 4, 2009 by kaizzle

    I give the iphone 5 stars!! Its the best phone I’ve ever used and I’ve had a lot of phones in my time. The texting is just something you need to get used to once your used to it, it’s awesome. The phone is more than just texting and talking if that’s all you do get another phone its not just for that. I think the apps are awesome some are pointless but jsut don’t download them. The thing thats great about this phone is that its a ipod as well so you get a two for one which is even better!! Anyone that says this phone is awful are just impatient and don’t take the time to actually get to know how to use it. It’s people like that, that want to take it out of the box and poof they can use it and know everythign about it without reading about it first. It’s people like that, need to just get a simple phone !!!

  10. July 4, 2009 by azeem jadun

    well iphone 3 g is not just a phone its an amazing device of the century .i have tried to switch to other phones but i couldnt ,non of the mobiles had the charm like iphone i saw nokia ,soneyE ,black b,moto, n manny more but nothing is there to change with except one phone that is iphone 3g (s) its more greater then 3g, well i am fully satisfied with iphone

  11. July 4, 2009 by Terese Anderson

    The Apple iPhone 3G is a step, rather a mountain’s climb above the rest. It’s had a beautiful aesthetic and it’s 3G performance is incomparable. Even newer phones that haven’t hit the market yet cannot compare, i.e., the all-too-late mytouch by tmobile. Apple has revolutionized cell phone technology.

  12. July 4, 2009 by John Meksa

    I am a totally devoted macbook user and just think that APPLE is the best. The iPhone is phenominal in every aspect. Lots of APPS are free and some are $.99 (Cents). The G3 is totally adictive and you begin to rely on the G3. Whatever you need is at your hands. Windows is a joke and the G3 makes life a lot easier. Apple products are a bit more expensive but, “Your getting quality.”

  13. July 13, 2009 by jojo

    i love this phone it is the greatest phone i ever spent money i just dont understand its setup

    wifi is quick

    back gets scratched up pretty easy

  14. July 13, 2009 by MARVIN SMITH

    Great phone indeed and easy on the aging eyes compared to my last cell phone. There is so much you can do with this phone, and it is user friendly as well. I love it and recommend it highly



  15. July 14, 2009 by Robert

    We use these side by side with the blackberry devices. Tom Strauss you are dumber than a crowbar. I have seen users replace these at a rate of about 3 a year per user. That might be good for you however I have Blackberry users that have had devices without cases for three years and they look to be in better shape than the iPhones and are far more durable for less than half the cost. In addition you are not limited to 32 GB because they use mini sd for additional storage. One Blackberry was dropped down an elevator shaft from the 36th floor and recovered by maintenance. No protective case and it still worked. I’ve seen 4 broken screens in less than 6 months on these iPhones and they have protective cases and haven’t take a fall of more than 3 feet.
    The iPhones are cool to look at, have a nice screen, the phone part sucks (period), and if you like attaching a constant drain on your bank account for apps etc… then this phone is for you. I really see no advantage for this device over my 5 year old Palm TX other than I could make a poor quality call on it. Actually the Palm allows you to write on the screen like your using a pencil. And since it has wi-fi I can almost always get a connection and browse, check mail, create word , excel, pdfs, download and watch movies for free. Not that a $100 a month isnt a better deal for data access than free.
    You either work for AT&T or your a lying cell phone salesman neither of which would make your appraisal of the device worth a darn.
    Overall this is a fancy toy for twenty somethings. Nice to look at. Works okay. Okay for browsing the web but clearly works best on Wi-Fi which is free at many places. It is way over priced. I used to purchase these for AT&T and they pay about $40 each for these devices.

    Looks nice, large display

    Poor keyboard design, worst phone I have ever used. My analogue phone under waters with the battery out was better. Get the idea??? Extremely Fragile.

  16. July 15, 2009 by Marc T.

    One of the worst Apple products so far. I had serious problems with the 3g reception and synching. The battery life is terrible, sometimes the whole phone just hangs for a few seconds. The BlueTooth is poor and the phone reboots frequently. Firmware upgrades didnt help, even made the things worse. I’m really disappointed.

    Design, clear sound

    lack of features, poor 3g reception, limited sms application, battery life

  17. August 9, 2009 by renee

    this is not only a phone, its a travling office.

    i love everything about this phone


  18. August 11, 2009 by M.Wilson

    The I phone 3g is the best phone I have owned it gives you access to the web as well as allot of applications that can help cure boredom or help get thing done like Quick Office. AT&T is the biggest down side for the phone but there coverage seems to be good enough and occasionally better than verizon.

    the Apps and Ipod

    AT&T dropped calls and lack of multimedia text messages

  19. August 12, 2009 by Jennifer

    I have been loyal to my Blackberry for years but after hearing coworkers raving about their iphones I finally bought the 32GB 3GS IPhone. I feel that I bought the best Iphone has to offer. Being completely honest the IPhone is nowhere in the same league as my Blackberry. Its a interesting, fun phone if your bored and need to be entertained. As far multitasking and quick functionability for business travel communication needs stay with the Blackberry if you have one. Do not make the same mistake I did. Luckily I have a additional line of service that Ive transferred my Blackberry tofor myself. As far as the Iphone I gave it to my 13 yr. old son.

    Fun phone if you need it for entertainment only!!

    Very limited options for professional communication needs.

  20. December 29, 2009 by tiffani

    I love this phone. I use it for everythin – gps, ebooks, games, music. I bought it refurbished and it still works great!

    great apps
    good battery life

    scratches easily

  21. April 20, 2010 by Brett

    All right. I have had 4 iPhones and my 4th one just broke. Only one was replaced by apple and I have paid for the other 3 out of my pocket. To be honest though, I have always loved the applications the phone has to offer, with a reasonably speedy processor. There are certainly faster phones on the market, with a better keyboard, and a better camera (2mp doesn’t really cut it). But what it all comes down to, is that you are sacrificing durability for style. I have now spent wayyy too much money being sucked into the trap of the iPhone. I need a new phone and I will never waste money on another iPhone again. Too bad I’m still stuck with AT&T for another year…

    Best applications available for any phone.
    High resolution screen
    iPod style music player

    Camera (2mp vs up to 5mp with other phones)
    DURABILITY (If you are active at all, DONT BUY THIS PHONE)

  22. April 24, 2010 by Sarah

    my friends all have 3G phones and they LOVE it. but, its so easy to scratches up very easily.
    i don’t have an iphone yet but i am geting one, most likely a 3G iphone and i think that this is actually a good deal.
    i not saying its a steal but if i am gonna buy this phone i need more information!

    great clarity
    easy to use

    EASILY scratches up

  23. July 29, 2010 by Jenny

    I absolutely love this phone

  24. September 11, 2010 by Jim


    This is the next version of the much loved iPhone 1st generation. The second generation iPhone adds 3G bandwidth to it and thus making it better and faster. There are no changes to the interface; it is still the same as in the previous generation iPhone. The hardware side too doesn’t have any changes, no visible ones anyway, so if you carry iPhone 3G, it might be mistaken for the 1st generation iPhone and vice versa. iPhone 3G is not a game changer, it just adds a few new features.

    Pros: nice design, cool apps, slim
    Cons: no actual improvements, no flash in camera, keyboard.

  25. September 11, 2010 by Bella


    iPhone 3G doesn’t work for me, it has no actual features, they are just improvements from the previous version of the iPhone. 3G is available in every smartphone and even feature phone currently available in the market so it is no way a new feature. The Bluetooth restrictions are also very bad, music, videos, documents, or any kind of files are not transferable from one phone to other. iPhone’s browser Safari which is a really good browser does not support flash.

    Pros: apps, music quality, user interface
    Cons: Bluetooth support, camera, keyboard.

  26. September 22, 2010 by Scott


    I haven’t owned a smart phone previously and use it primarily for calls, texting and WIFI. II am currently using T-mobile service, talk and text only so I don’t use the 3G. Mine is unlocked and jailbroken with 4.0.1firmware. I find it easy to use and entertaining. By using Installus and Cydia for free Apps I can keep operating costs under $40 per month. The camera is not the greatest, but now I don’t have to carry and ipod, phone, laptop and camera while out on the road. It is more fragile than most other phones, but the pros outweigh the cons in my opinion.

  27. October 13, 2010 by ish


    “You can not satisfy all the people all the time”… of course for some individuals this may not function based on their expectations, needs, and habbits.. However, personally I’ve owned all kinds of phones, free ones, expensive ones, smartphones, windows phones, the infamouse black berry, htcs and even a treo… and… YES, i stop searching for a phone the day i got my iphone.

    Need i say more?

    oh and yes for all the ones that do not know, you can unlock any iphone, jailbreak, over and over, and customize better than any other phone i’ve ever known. I currently have mine thru T-mobile (which sucks), therefore i cannot enjoy the 3g on mine, and with some phones now offering 4g well makes me whish i could at least use my iphone to its full potential…

    Then again, nowdays where can you go where there is no wifi?..

    And last;… the person that mentioned earlier that you cannot get maps on the iphone… needs to put the meds down!…

    Im literally lost without my iphone!

    Pros: hard surface touch sensitivity, apps, customisability, style, intuitive, media playback, portablity, market support, accessories, etc….
    Cons: batery life, speaker volume

  28. October 26, 2010 by Tony


    the iphone 3GS is the best phone i ever had.and it works great also.
    Right now i’m looking for a good deal on a 4G.cause i’ve heard that those have more features.

    Pros: apps,style,accessiores,media.everything.
    Cons: Battery life

  29. November 23, 2010 by roh


    iPhone 3g is awesome! I don’t text much or use a camera a lot, but i use apps and call, so this phone is really useful for me. Love to apps alot!

    Pros: Awesome apps.
    Sound quality.
    Less than $100.
    Cons: Video quality.
    Scratches easily.

  30. December 18, 2010 by Julien Cosyns


    It was by far the best Phone i’ve owned!! I love everything about it!
    The apps are Fantastic,taking pics watching videos,listening to music,browsing the web..you name it!
    I look forward to own the Iphone 4!

    Pros: Everything..it changed my idea of what a phone can really be!
    Cons: NONE.

  31. April 9, 2011 by shelley

    Gotta agree with Heather. Hate this phone….Now that I accidentally dropped it out of my pants pocket – yes you guessed where it went… please someone tell me you have a great used phone to sell me other than this I-phone junk… I need to text and have a phone that rings….

  32. September 17, 2011 by aj


    good phone in the world and worth the price i will recommend the iphone 3g to all my friends

    Pros: the whole concept of the iphone 3g and the ipod touch both look the same
    Cons: the usage of the iphone 3g is good but if you drop it with no case then you cant use it anymore because the whole body is damaged but still you can use it but its hard to use because of the broken lcd sreen

  33. November 25, 2012 by Lala1234


    This ohone is amazing even though iphone5 has now come out i prefer iphone3 for slim and cool apps iphone 4 and 5 are big bulki

    Pros: Very good design
    Cool apps
    Cons: Could have a bit more space and could be lighter :) oth then that its great;)
